Sale-A-Bration Last Call Blog Hop


You just came over from the talented Christine's Blog and we are celebrating the last two days of Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration.  I have really enjoyed all of the free items we had available this year.  Still time to place an order, and not miss out on these great buys.  The Patterned Occasions Stamp Set has five stamps that will end up being your go-to set of the future.  I found the "Smarties" bag set on Pinterest and thought what a great graduation gift it would make.  Couldn't you see these as favors at a graduation party?  My pic isn't the greatest for reading the sentiment...congratulations smarty pants! The sentiment is under the blue jeans on the stamp, but I cut the stamp in two, separating them and now I can stamp them in different colors.  I covered the clothes pin in the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street DSP.  Love how the colors worked together.

The Bloomin' Marvelous has four sentiments and four images, to me that is Marvelous!  I free stamped the flowers, stamping twice before re-inking.  The images include the flower, leaf, butterfly and a hummingbird, love it.

The next card once again uses the Sycamore Street DSP in the background as well as the Sycamore Street Ribbon and the Vine Street Embossing Folder.  I love butterflies and found this card on Pinterest also.  The large butterfly was made with the Elegant Butterfly punch and I love the way the Sycamore DSP colors blend so well together.  The smaller butterfly punch called the Bitty Butterfly just came out in our spring catalog, the cool thing is that it matches the smallest butterfly in the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.

I was determined that I was not going to purchase everything in the spring catalog this year.  Well that lasted until I saw my friend, Susan Horr's card that I CASEd below.  I loved the dress so much that I purchased the All Dressed Up Bundle and our Tea Lace Paper Doilies.  It is my favorite color also, Real Red and have to love the Polka Dot Parade DSP.  
All Dressed Up Oh, Hello

I saw this cute baby card on Pintrest and had to make it for my card buffet.  It was so easy to make, the birds are made out of two half hearts.  I used the new Tea for Two DSP out of the spring catalog.

I fell in love with this baby card when I found it.  The stacking toy was one of my favorites, wish I had found it before the two grand babies were born.  I used the Natural Composition Specialty paper for the wood and the Color Collection DSP stacks for the rings.
Hello Baby
Hope you enjoyed yourself and join us again next month for our next blog hop.  Now on to talented Marsha's blog.
